As if Giants fans weren't mad enough at Dave Gettleman. Despite consecutive porous seasons, the team still decided to bring back the two-time Super Bowl champion and name him the starter for their next campaign.
As it turns out, in addition to their plans to bring back Manning as their starter for the 2019 season, the Giants may be open to extending his contract through 2020.

This is certainly not news that Giants fans want to hear, especially with the organization stating that they are looking to rebuild moving forward. Normally in the case of an aging quarterback, a rebuild constitutes bringing in a young signal-caller with potential.
In the case of the Giants, it seems that Gettleman and the rest of the organization are content with rebuilding around Manning for now.
This is not the first time that the Giants have come to the defense of Manning despite his recent play, so this news should not come at a huge shock. Still, if Gettleman is unable to make the tough decisions in order to improve the team moving forward, he's just wasting our time.
